“Multi-media artist Debra Pearlman’s new large-scale “glitter” works in Unaccompanied… combine painting, silkscreened photographic images, and crushed glass on canvas, infusing the surfaces with shifting shapes suggesting both a startling imminence and ghostly vanishing depending on one’s position when viewing them.

Toma’s paintings are marked by the timeless fervency of their visual description. The presumedly “casual” scenes seem interlocked with partially remembered dreams, where the beholder’s viewpoint becomes an integral part of the painting. An atmosphere of nostalgia and mystery is inherent in Toma’s images; familiar objects carry symbolic meanings and nonhuman forms are often used as objects of displacement, to bring up issues that cannot be expressed forthrightly.

Joa’s new work invites objection to the idea that what is present slips further and further into the past to the point of “non being”. The viewer is imaginatively drawn along, to linger on in silent contemplation of its’ own “disappearance”, and almost to hear the time passing. The works unveil something that borders on the invisibility, a present of things past that exists, in some sort, in the soul.

Kim and Stone invite the viewer to critically examine their respective artistic journey of redefining two widespread materials, foil and sheet rock. Kim and Stone’s odyssey from Ordinary to Extraordinary reflects not only unique sensibilities, but also a keen understanding of the material and its array of possibilities.

Safran-Hon’s work is anchored in an undeniable reality, yet, by extracting the essence from the soul of the materials she uses, she unceasingly builds, thus transforms preexisting contexts. The spirit is inherent in Safran-Hon’s intellectual construction and, as the journey described in sefer hechaloth, the inner odyssey within oneself (Anselm Kiefer) permeates her entire body of work.
